Sail Date: Aug 2013

Just came back from a 10 day cruise on Quest which left Athens and ended up in Monte Carlo. This was our second Seabourn cruise. Two years ago we cruised on the Legend, one of the smaller ships, and we were concerned we wouldn't be able to replicate the Legend experience on one of the bigger ships. We arrived in Athens from New York the night before the ship sailed, and visited the Acopolis early the next morning. Not to be missed is the relatively new Parthenon Museum....it has won several architectural awards, and the exhibits are amazing.

Boarding the ship was easy.....we arrived dockside at 2:15pm and were the only passengers there. Check in and security took 5 minutes and we walked right on the ship into our suite. Within a couple of minutes our room steward arrived with glasses of champagne and canapes, plus a choice of toiletries and shower soap. Our suite was on deck 4, as we don't see the value in having a balcony. It was near the rear exit to The Restaurant, but still in its own corridor, so noise was never an issue. A quick walk to dinner!

We explored the ship before the general muster, and still being a relatively small ship it didn't take long to get around. The ship is still in good condition two years after being launched.

Cabin Review

Cabin SB

Suite 431, Quest. Minor design complaint with all cabins is that if bathroom door is open when you open the suite door, they hit each other. On level 4 you tend to hear the side props more than higher levels.....I was usually woken up each morning when the ship was docking.
